Achievements In World Language Poetry Recitation

A World Language Poetry Recitation Contest was held in German and Spanish classes at ConVal High School on Friday, December 8. 

At each level of language instruction, the length and difficulty level of the poems got progressively more advanced, with some poems dating back to the first decade of the 19th century. Some students chose to dramatically act out their poem.

Kudos to all the students who memorized and recited poems in their chosen foreign language. Special congratulations go to the students who won awards in their respective language class levels and sections:
